Recall the rapper alongside Zlatan Ibile and three of their associates were nabbed following their controversial support for fraudulent practices among young Nigerians. It was reported that electronic devices belonging to the parties were confiscated during the bust, prompting the agency to launch strict investigations into their activities.

As you read this, Naira Marley will be appearing in court today, May 30, 2019 where we’ll get to know the final outcome of his bail hearing.

We’ve however gathered that the ‘Am I a ’ crooner will likely be granted bail by the trial judge today. It has also been observed that all hands are on deck by his legal team to ensure that the bail condition is met as soon as it is stated.

A lawyer who chose to remain anonymous spoke to BlackBox  about the troubled rapper. He revealed that the fraud charges against Naira Marley although quite serious was actually a ‘bailable’ offence. He however added that the bail conditions might however be very stringent depending on the fight put up by EFCC’s prosecution lawyers.

Another lawyer, Jide Abiodun also agreed that he will likely get bail based on the current charges.

“Yes he probably will. Bail is always at the discretion of the court. The offense is a bailable offence and so there should be no cause for alarm,” Barrister Abiodun revealed.

He however believes Naira Marley might not be able to go home today even if he gets granted bail by the court.

According to Barr. Abiodun, “What might prevent him from going home today is the likely conditions of bail. When a defendant has been granted bail by the court upon and premised on some conditions to be fulfilled, not until those conditions are fulfilled, he would still remain in custody. His International passport is likely to be seized pending the determination of the charge against him, and might be released to him whenever he requests same through a proper application to court in case of emergency or necessity.”

He also gave a case study to back up his legal opinion…

“Under the Nigeria Law, bail is a right of an accused person. An accused person is not usually denied bail, except where the offence is a capital offence. Bolakale vs. State (2002) 1 NWLR (Pt.962) page 507.” Per NDUKWE-ANYANWU, J.C.A. (P.5, Paras.F-G).”

Meanwhile, with the singer’s current situation with EFCC and case still in court, Nigerian have predicted the singer might be going to jail afterall; seeing the fact that his friends Zlatan and Raman Jago were released on bail, Marley’s management had earlier released an official press statement to help fans and concerned citizens know the fate of the embattled singer.

They wrote; 

“The current situation with Naira Marley is extremely unfortunate. On May 10th, 2019, Naira Marley was arrested in the early early hours of his birthday.

“We heard there had been complaints and concerns around his recent comments around cybercrime, Naira did not publicly defend those who commit fraud, he expressed his view on the situation which was simply his opinion in which every human being is entitled to.

“Following on from this, he innocently made a playful, reactive song “?” in response to the growing feed-backs he received. As an artiste, music is Naira’s avenue of expressing himself, the song “?” is a rhetorical question, assuming people would find it humourous as well as be a light-hearted response to those tackling him online. He is not a yahoo boy!

“Naira Marley is a hardworking artiste who has turned his back on crime and focuses solely on music. He’s an artiste, father and most importantly a human being.

“He has been making music for a while but recently became popular after the success of “Issa Goal,” a song which celebrated Nigeria and the nation’s contribution in sport.

“Music is his passion, is his career and the only way he makes his earnings. Naira Marley does not practice fraud neither does he facilitate it.

“Naira Marley isn’t just an artiste in the public eye, he is a human being with rights. At present, his basic human and civic rights are being violated. The EFCC are yet to find “hard evidence.”

“His reputation is being tainted and he’s been used as the poster boy for fraud. Cyber-crime is a serious issue in Nigeria and is something  the government is actively tackling, as they should, however, their efforts to persecute Naira is based on a cheeky song and questionable items found on a borrowed item isn’t fair.

“Naira Marley was found with an item that does not belong to him. Items retrieved were borrowed so he can upload music, and records whilst visiting Nigeria.

“Naira does not believe he is above the law, he made a few comments that did not sit well with the authorities and they are using him as a scapegoat to show their strict stance on cyber-crime. Naira has been in custody for over five days.

“Naira Marley is an artiste that speaks for the street, those who do not have a voice, not only in Nigeria but in the UK also. Although his messages may come across misconstrued, he loves his country, he cares for his people and wants people to feel free and happy when they listen to his music.

“We are all entitled to freedom of speech and to express ourselves creatively. No one should be penalized for it even when it’s a controversial topic. The real criminals of Nigeria should be the focus and not an individual who is bringing positive attention to Nigerian music and culture internationally.

“Our lawyers are working diligently to prove his innocence and have him set free. There is a lot of false information circulating around and we have released this statement to set the records straight.

“However, the EFCC are still investigating. This is a very sensitive topic and a public case. We ask that the media report accurately as false claims can harm his reputation and lively hood.

“Thanks to everyone for their continued support, to the Marlians, Naira is lucky to have you, please continue to show your support for him. We hope to have this situation resolved and Naira is released soon.

Kind regards, management.”

The most dreaded and unexpected has happened to veteran rapper, Ruggedman as he was attacked by angry youths suspected to be fans of cybercrime ( Yahoo) advocate, barely 24hrs after he was released from prison.

Should we be worried? Yes, we should! If Ruggedman was attacked by fans who advocate crime then there is a big problem in . We know that crime has eaten deep in the Nigerian society as many now see it as a means of survival under the guise of the never-ending hardship in but if being attacked for speaking against crime is now the order of the day, then we have a very humungous fish to fry.

Prior to this attack, on Friday 14th June , rapper, Naira Marley who had a brawl with Ruggedman was released from prison following an arrest made by the Economic And Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on an 11 count charge of cybercrime. This arrest came as a of his rants on social media where he publicly supported the online criminal acts.

While the rapper got large support from some celebrities and many youths who gave astonishing reasons why online fraud shouldn’t be seen as a crime, some were not having it. Championing the team opposing the motion was veteran Rapper Ruggedman who obviously isn’t getting much love from the streets at the moment.

If really, those who attacked Ruggedman were linked to Naira Marley, then this could pose as a serious threat to Naira Marley’s freedom. Confirming the rumours of the probability that these attackers were actually ‘Yahoo Yahoo’ advocates, Ruggedman wrote on his Instagram page;

“Being attacked by 4 misguided boys will not deter me from fighting for the youths, even though they blindly fight me”

WATCH OF THE ATTACK BELOW:

So what does the near future hold for Naira Marley? We understand that some artistes today gained popularity after their long battle with the law which was used as a tool to win the hearts of fans on the guise of injustice but Naira Marley’s case is nowhere near justifiable because Cybercrime is an offence and even though he was released on bail, the possibility of him going back to jail if found guilty is still high. Now, an assault case which could be used against him is like adding salt and other spices to a fresh injury.

If you recall, Ruggedman who was ropped in during the whole Naira Marley saga got more attention of Nigerians after controversial blogger, Kemi Olunloyo accused the #EndSars Advocate of being a snitch. Trust me, whenever Kemi Olunloyo speaks on sensitive matters, crazy or not, Nigerians always keep her words to heart and when you have a set of angry Nigerian youths blinded by hate and vendetta, it’s normal to expect such an attack on Ruggedman, only that we didn’t think it would travel as far as the United Kingdom with boxing gloves.

Naira Marley, on the other hand, might just be waving goodbye to his career after the whole incident because judging from his history, he has not only had a feud with Ruggedman. Before attacking the likes of popular social media blogger, Tunde Ednut who spoke against cybercrime, the upcoming rapper had a brawl with Nigerian singer, Simi Gold who he called out on social media for allegedly snubbing him at an event. Should we say he was digging his grave unknowingly?

Truth be told, Naira Marley is not the first to have celebrity feuds but as an upcoming artiste trying to set his foot on a firm foundation in the industry, his move was just a NO NO. Interestingly, amidst the chaos, the upcoming rapper, recently released a song titled ‘Opotoyi’ with a video which has seen loads of downloads from fans and those curious to know all about the rapper.

While many see it as an attempt by the rapper to distract the public from his mess with the Law, some see it as a sign of greatness on the side of the rapper just as Kemi Olunloyo once prophecied. Besides, not everyone can drop a hot single in cuffs or behind bars.

On the flip side, Ruggedman is actually being called out as well by some Nigerians who claim the attack was just staged. Not that I’m one to believe such an accusation but a photo of Ruggedman and a British policeman which was allegedly taken after the incident makes the accusation look true.

Remember the Jussie Smollett case where the actor and singer claimed he was a victim of a homophobic attack which later on turned out to be untrue? well, many Nigerians are seeing it from that angle. Anyway, whatever the case may be, Ruggedman who has released a video confirming he was okay after the attack has just heightened the drama surrounding Naira Marley and the future of the upcoming rapper in the entertainment industry looks bleak.

WATCH RUGGEDMAN’S VIDEO BELOW:

 

For now, all I can say is that Ruggedman should watch his back and Naira Marley should try getting to the bottom of the matter because if he is discovered to be linked to this fresh attack, it will be an Adios Amigos case for his musical career. For your reading pleasure, below are the reactions of some Nigerians;
